LCMS convention discussion of the SMP program is frustrating because #actually we really should let people get a certificate of ordination and bow out of an MDiv. SMP program may be sloppy but idea that pastors need be academics is false.

there's your smack talk @Alyse_On_Life
"we shouldn't lower our standards for ministry"

totally agreed 150% but like is there any actual proof that having an MDiv genuinely truly makes you a better pastor

I was recently in the process of discerning if the ministry might be a good fit for me.

Decided no when I realized it would take longer, with more class hours, and at much greater cost, than getting my PhD in economics.

So I'm like jaded and all.
